i hope someone can shed some light on truly contained boxes. i'd hate to resort to using an iFrame.
Are you linking from within the autoscrolling div to another part of the div, or from the page content external to the div?
Is the height of the scrolling div absolutely (in px) or relatively (as %) sized?
Is the scrolling div the only scrolling part of the page, or does the viewport have a scrollbar as well?
In my experience, these factors all influence how linking in a scrolling div will behave. I have developed pages where this behaves very nicely - it is a good technique when executed properly.
I have an example in the webtools subdirectory of my site where the menu jumps to a specific location in the scrolling div.
PS - Toolman - is your site busted? I have overlapping content that I'm sure you hadn't intended in both IE5.5 & Moz1.3
1. the link to expand the list is inside the div
3. the scrolling div is supposed to be the only scrolling part of the page. however, because the div doesn't completely contain the text, invisible content going down puts a scrollbar on the side of the page.
